Love Paris

I have very fond memories of Paris because my DH proposed to me along the Seine River by Notre Dame. From proposal, engagement, wedding planning and finally married to our honeymoon... our first year of marriage is nearly complete... but not without another adventure. Tomorrow we'll be travelling to Costa Rica to celebrate our 1st Year Anniversary.

Love Every Moment

The item that my customers love most are my scrapbook tins. By now, I've sold quite a few; but sadly, once it's been sold, I never get to see what's done to it. Today was different though. I was at the Brooklyn Flea today, and a friend bumped into my table without knowing I'd be there. She checked out my stuff and it so happened that she needed a gift and my scrapbook tin happily made its way into her hands. I was delighted that she loved it. I didn't expect to hear back about it but being just as crafty, she took it home and within hours, she gave my scrapbook tin life. I won't share her tin here for privacy purposes, but it truly made my day; so thanks S. You rock!

I don't think I've ever blogged about my wedding scrapbook tin - the wedding album I made to use as a sample to show my customers what my tins are all about; so here it is filled with photos of one of the happiest days in my life.

Day Trip to Governor's Island

More photos on flickr: Governor's Island Set

Governor's Island is now open! Mike told me about this several weeks ago and we've been wanting to check it out. It was pretty neat to take the free 5 minute ferry ride over. We went on Saturday afternoon, after a lovely but pricey brunch at Sarabeth's to celebrate a friends birthday. Despite the downpour, we decided to take our chances and headed on over. I didn't really know what to expect but it turned out much better than I thought. We had so much fun, yet we were still in the city. Governor's Island is still a work in progress but they plan on implementing many eco-friendly solutions such as, free Bike Rental*on Fridays! Unfortunately, we were there on a Saturday so we paid, but it was totally worth it.

I'm not a history buff, but there's something about visiting historical places that moves me. I may not know anything about where I am or what I'm looking at; but being here and seeing for myself what's existed for decades before I was even born is quite amazing.
*Bike Rentals are only free for the first half an hour as advertised on the website.
